At God’s Littlest Angels, We Embrace Hope
Embracing Hope at God's Littlest Angels
At God’s Littlest Angels this month, we are “Embracing Hope.” Thanks to your generosity, we wanted to share some incredible stories that capture how hope has transformed young lives. Each child who comes to us is so precious, so full of potential and yet many arrive malnourished, in need of urgent medical care. With your support, we can provide the nurturing, care, and healing they need to thrive.
Let's Look at these Five Remarkable Stories...
➤ “Dear” is a 12-year-old girl who arrived at GLA as a malnourished frail two-month-old baby. “Dear” received specialized medical care and nurturing in the orphanage. Now this Angel is a vibrant, healthy young lady with a bright future. ➤Four-year-old “Mate” came to God’s Littlest Angels by ambulance in 2018, weighing in at just two pounds. He needed specialized care from the NICU on campus. With the support of GLA’s staff and perseverance, “Mate” took his first steps last year with a new prosthesis and now loves climbing on anything he can! He greets everyone with a smile and hugs.
➤ “Super Star” was born with a cleft lip and palate, but in September 2021, she was able to have corrective surgery thanks to donor funds. She attends speech therapy regularly and loves to compliment her friends. It’s beautiful to see her confidence grow. ➤” Sister” was seven months old when she arrived at God’s Littlest Angels in 2014. Near the end of 2021, doctors determined that “Sister” had a slower-than-normal heart rate. Last year, “Sister” traveled to the U.S. where she had a successful pacemaker surgery. The doctors, hospital, and accommodations were all donated. Now this Angel lives a healthy, energetic life. ➤” Good Buddy” arrived by ambulance with a Down Syndrome diagnosis. He was admitted to the NICU unit. The team at GLA quickly stabilized him, and he slowly began to gain weight. Now “Good Buddy” is a happy, healthy 4-year-old boy. He started walking last year and spends his days running around and climbing on everything.
"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness" -Desmond Tutu
In a world that can seem so dark and full of despair, in a country that is on the verge of collapse, we still can see glimmers of hope. These are just a few of the miracles we see every day. Children who have endured hardships but embrace life with joy and hope. By example, they show us resilience and perseverance and teach us profound lessons about love. This is all made possible because our donors, supporters, and prayer warriors have been faithful. The GLA leadership and staff are incredibly grateful for your faithful giving.
We know many more miracles are ahead for God’s Littlest Angels. We ask that you prayerfully consider supporting our efforts and journey with us as we continue to Embrace Hope for a brighter future for these precious Angels.
